Welcome back to the Wasteland! The Wasteland 3 is the next installment of MGP’s successful Wasteland event series. The Wasteland is an alternate reality event based on the FallOut computer games. The setting is an area around the ruins of Washington DC, two hundred years after a devastating nuclear war.
The FallOut world is not quite our own. It is an alternate reality that diverged from ours at some point after the second World War. The base concept for the setting is the World of Tomorrow as imagined in the Golden Age of Science Fiction. This means that before the Great War, the FallOut world was more or less what the people of the 1940s and 1950s thought things would be like in 2077. The most important event in the FallOut setting was the Great War which happened on October 23, 2077.
Our game continues in the Capitol Wasteland of 2282. The Capital Wastes were abuzz with news that the dreaded Slavers of Paradise Falls had been crushed by a force from the West. The joy was short-lived, however when the true nature of The Legion was revealed. Originating from the deserts of the south-west, the Legion is a cruel, highly militarized slaver society based on the old Roman Empire. Other tribes and communities are forced to join the Legion and its way or life, or be destroyed and enslaved. The Legion’s westward expansion was halted at the Colorado River by the New California Republic. The God Mars spoke to Caesar in a dream and said that his path to domination would be assured if he could capture the seat of the Old American Republic and prove his right to rule. Caesar has assembled a sizable army, marching them for months across the ruined and hostile countryside, to seize the Capital Wasteland.
The self-proclaimed saviors of America, the Enclave, have mobilized their forces to deal with this direct threat to the old Capital region. Wastelanders and communities of survivors scramble to arm themselves as these two armies prepare to battle over the Capital Wastes while the Regulators and Reilly’s Rangers try to maintain order and protect those too weak to help themselves. Talon Company and groups of raiders watch the gathering clouds of war with an appreciative eye for contracts and loot. Supermutants hungrily watch the growing supply of human flesh for their gore-bags.
Fame, fortune and relics of pre-war technology await! Welcome to the Capitol Wasteland!

Featured Item: Wiley X Lacey Sunglasses for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We are proud to support Wiley X and National Breast Cancer Awareness month by offering these very stylish sunglasses for women, and as usual, shipping is free on all purchases of Wiley X eyewear from darkthreads.com


WILEY X® EYEWEAR SUPPORTING NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH 
Part of Year-Round Effort That Includes Donating Money From Sales of Wiley X Lacey™ Sunglasses 

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), and once again leading protective eyewear manufacturer Wiley X® is doing its part to raise awareness and help fund ongoing research and prevention efforts.


This year marks the 26th October where The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) — working with the support of corporate and individual partners around the world — has shined a much-needed spotlight on this health issue. The BCRFʼs goal is to find a cure in our lifetime for this disease that impacts so many women and families around the world. This month-long awareness and education effort is known for its “Pink” creative elements and a global proliferation of the eye-catching color. This is particularly true of BCRFʼs trademark Pink Ribbon, a globally recognized icon symbolizing the fight against breast cancer.

“Weʼre proud to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as well as the ongoing efforts of an organization such as The Breast Cancer Research Foundation,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “Awareness, education and research will be the keys to fighting this disease and eventually finding a cure. This is so important, we had to find a way to support this vital effort throughout the year. We found it with the development of our stylish Lacey sunglasses for women,” added Freeman.

This model has quickly become a top-seller, with Wiley X donating $3 for each pair sold to BCRF. This program has helped raise thousands of dollars to advance life-saving breast cancer research, while helping to promote breast cancer awareness. With their unique Cotton Candy colored frames (with lenses available in Coral Pink or Polarized Bronze), these glasses definitely make a bold fashion statement. Each pair of Wiley X Lacey sunglasses also comes with a signature BCRF Pink Ribbon cling sticker; another reminder of the need for women to remain vigilant against this disease.

As feminine and stylish as these glasses are, they provide the same superior level of protection as all Wiley X models. In fact, Wiley X is the only premium performance sunglass manufacturer whose entire line meets ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity and high mass impact and optical performance standards. Which means, women wearing the Wiley X Lacey can rest assured their vision has optimum protection during every outdoor activity.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® was founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder as an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative clinical and translational research. In October 2011, BCRF will award $36.5 million to 186 scientists across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia and China. Currently, more than 90 cents of every dollar donated is directed to breast cancer research and awareness programs. With exceptionally low administrative costs, BCRF continues to be one of the most efficient organizations in the country and is designated an “A+” charity by The American Institute of Philanthropy, the only cancer organization to achieve this. For more information about BCRF, visit www.bcrfcure.org.
